BL/M44 Card Protectors - Where to purchase ?? Thu, 14 August 2008 02:52
Well I've looked around and have tried various card protectors for BL (as well as M44) and it seems to the 2 common ones - YugiOh and Magic don't cut it.

Yugioh is way too thin but right length (roughly)

Magic is tad too small in length.

Thus was wondering where people have been getting their card protectors (for both M44 and BL since they seem to have the same card size).

Also it would have been nice to have BL and M44 cards be able to fit into one of the 2 common card protectors WITHOUT having to scour the earth to find ones that work.

Thanks
Cab

I bought Dragon Shield card protectors for Memoir and used the leftover sleeves for BL. It's a little bit wider, and the width of the protecting pocket is exactly the same as the cards (so you can actually touch the card when it's in the sleeve), but it's good enough for me!

(Didn't buy them from THAT specific shop, that's just the first one I found with a google search right now)



EDIT: And now I realize you meant exactly these that weren't good enough. Oh well...

Tormentor, they seem to be the same size as Magic sleeves, correct?

If you have one, could you give the actual width/height dimensions of the sleeves ??

Thanks

Hey Caboose,

I bought Saf-T-Gard DS05 sleeves for mine. They are turned out to be maybe a 1/16-1/8" short but they definitely do the job.

That seems to be about the same size as MTG size - well maybe a little smaller height than others.

Obviously with FFG taking over BL, I might just wait and see what happens. If you do happen to get the dimensions for those sleeves and post it as well as where you got them, that would be great!

Thanks

They are...67 mm x 89 mm. For Battlelore as I noted they are about 2 mm short but otherwise work just fine. For FFG games the length of the sleeve is right on but they are about 2-3 mm wider so there is a little extra space in the sleeve but still totally acceptable to me. I bought them on eBay a while back. I don't recall the vendor but if I can track down who it was I will let you know.

Just get penny sleeves. Unlike card "protectors", they don't do any damage to your cards. They may not be a perfect fit, but as long as they cover the card, what else matters?
